Off and on (and much more off than on) over the past several months, I’ve been crocheting food for the little man. He has a cute little kitchen with dishes, and a couple of Melissa and Doug food sets (sushi and birthday cake) which he plays with once in a while. And, being a crafty mom, I thought I would make him some more play food.
These patterns are all from the book [amazon_link id=”B004WB1A70″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Yummi ‘Gurumi[/amazon_link] by Christen Haden (aka NeedleNoodles) and Mariarosa Sala. (I believe that most of them are also available for sale on Ravelry if you poke around a bit. I know the single version of the sushi pattern contains more items too, but I digress.)
A bacon and lettuce sandwich (tomato coming soon!) and a wheel of brie cheese. They are crocheted from a combination of Bernat Satin, Mary Maxim Starlette and Patons Canadiana.
And the sushi platter with wasabi and ginger. Again, these were crocheted with a combination of Bernat Satin, Mary Maxim Starlette and Patons Canadiana.
Yummi ‘Gurumi is a totally adorable book. I have plans to make just about everything in it: the vegetables, fruit, dim sum buns, the stir-fry, etc. The little man will have a totally ridiculous amount of play food, especially considering he is much more interested in playing with his Hot Wheels or on the computer, than he is in playing with his kitchen.
